Caltrans is keeping busy, clearing out dry brush along a 15 mile stretch of State Route 330 from Highland to Running Springs.
Work continues on the $10.5 million pavement project on State Route 177 between I-10 in Desert Center and State Route 62 in Twentynine Palms. That’s 27 miles. The work will continue until Winter of 2023.
A $2.5 million project will upgrade pavement markings and striping at the on and off ramps on westbound Interstate 10 near Palm Springs, Desert Hot Springs and Cathedral City. Watch from workers from the Whitewater overcrossing to just east of Bob Hope Drive. They will finish the job by end of 2022.
Caltrans is also spending $5.5 million to upgrade curbs and ramps for pedestrians in Palm Springs along Gene Autry Trail and Vista Chino and North Palm Canyon Drive. Work is 6 a-m to 3 pm Monday through Friday through the summer of 2023. It will cover an area from Golf Club Drive to Gateway Drive.
As for the I-10 Tune-up project through the Banning Pass, that is still going on. Look for lane closures and exit ramp closures from Haugen Lehmann Way to Pennsylvania Avenue. Some of the paving work has to be done during the day because it is too cold to do it at night. This is a long term project.
